Physical Kingdom Problems
Jesus’ kingdom is spiritual. And this is a problem for the physical kingdom views of a Millennium. Where these say the kingdom will come before the end of the world and remain for 1000 years. Jesus says it is already here. (Luke 11:20). Paul says flesh and blood cannot inherit it (1 Corinthians 15:50). Jesus says it comes without observation (Luke 17:20). And John says only those born-again can enter it (John 3:5).
This means, if a millennial kingdom were to come after the resurrection and rapture, the only place scripture allows for it (1 Thessalonians 4:16–17), only saints in glorified bodies would populate it. (Since flesh and blood cannot inherit it). So when the 1000 years would end with Satan...
Jesus said, “I am the Vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing” (John15:5).
Our purpose as Jesus’ disciples is to remain in an abiding (- dependent) relationship with Him so that in all the things that we do or say, His life may be expressed through us.
He is The Vine; we are the branches.
The same life in The Vine flows through the branches to produce fruit (= His Life)...
As we abide in Him, and His word abides in us, His very nature (fruit) flows through us, touching and changing the lives of many ...as we pass through this world..
We don't have to strive to produce fruit...we can't, the life is in the...
We've turned into a police state, we're being surveilled, losing manufacturing jobs, and the culture has just degraded quickly. It looks to me as if America is circling the drain. Do others get a sense that something is about to happen? I keep thinking that we cannot go on like this. I found a good site that explains some things:
Who Is the Antichrist?
At first I thought the whore of babylon was the Roman Catholic Church but after doing lots of research I discoveredidn't alot of evidence that it's actually ancient pagan rome, the one thing that has me still questioning if the whore of babylon is the catholic church (specifically vatican) is the fact that babylon is identified as a spiritual whore, in the bible a spiritual whore is someone who was in a relationship with God but then went after other gods and ancient pagan rome never had a relationship with God, can anyone help me with this confusion
Flesh VS Spirit
Jesus says: “For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:” (Matthew 15:19)
Earlier Moses said: “And the LORD thy God will circumcise thine heart, and the heart of thy seed, to love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live.” (Deuteronomy 30:6)
And later John said: “Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.” (1 John 3:9–10)
But then Paul comes along and says: “This I...
Has your belief system led you to visions of miraculous events that must occur in the near future that infer rewards in an afterlife for good deeds done today in order for your faith to even have any meaning? If it doesn't work out like you planned, and the miracles don't occur in the way you currently understand, what will that do to your faith? Are you a victim of magical thinking?
Here's How the Human Mind Is Wired For Magical Thinking
Here is a short series on the bodily resurrection, ascension, and return of Jesus that I hope will be a blessing to you. The videos follow one another leading up to a Bible / Ahadith comparison (part 5) which reveals who Jesus is in Islamic eschatology and the major role Islam has to play in opposing Christ at His return.
For whom it may concern, my YouTube channel is non-profit as you will see with no adverts or recent uploads. I only wish to share with you the things God has revealed to me. All glory to God.
